About JAMB CAPS Portal

JAMB CAPS stands for the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board Central Admission Processing System.

It is a platform created by JAMB to automate the admissions process into universities or tertiary institutions in Nigeria while ensuring transparency, quality control, and credibility of the admission process.

The CAPS, an abbreviation for Central Admission Processing System, is a ‘marketplace’ in the JAMB portal where tertiary institutions can enter and request students in Nigeria who scored up to their cut-off marks.

The CAPS system procedure only allows institutions to admit students who meet their cut-off marks. A candidate who fails to meet the cut-off mark will be denied admission.

Other functions include access to the JAMB admission status, accept/reject admission offers, upload O’ level Results and requirements for admission consideration, automated results verification with the ‘NECO & WAEC for Candidates’ interface, confirmation of admission offer, and automatic enforcement of admission timelines.
